I did quite a bit of research in figuring out which alcohol still to buy. I thought I would share my thinking regarding how I went about finally deciding on this particular still.

The first consideration I had was what material the still should be made of. Almost all alcohol stills are made of either copper or stainless steel. The vast majority of stills are made from copper and relatively few stills are made entirely from stainless steel.

Those still makers that use copper will claim that they use this material because it is traditional for stills and because it provides quick thermal conductivity. And on both counts they are correct--prohibition era moonshine stills were often made of copper and copper does provide fast heat conductivity.

However, I feel that fast heat conductivity is really not important for a still because stills are used at low to moderate temperatures and distilling sessions tend to be relatively long. I really can't see a need for a still to heat up a bit quicker by using copper material rather than stainless steel. When a distilling session is going to last 45 minutes or so, what's the point of shaving off 30 seconds from that?

And as far as the traditional use of copper in stills, to me, personally, that just doesn't matter that much--what's more important is effectiveness, and I just don't see copper being more effective (plus it's a pain in the rear to clean.)

I suspect the real reason most makers of stills use copper is because it is easily malleable. Most still makers are relatively small operations out of a small workshop. Copper can be easily molded and formed in a small workshop without super elaborate tooling, unlike stainless steel which requires industrial equipment and tooling to mold and stamp.

5.0 out of 5 stars ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? May 12, 2009
If you want to make your own essentials (ummm... or ummm spirits), get this. Not so big that you have to make gallons at a time to get a decent batch.. and not so small that you don't get a full shot... this does the trick.. right in your kitchen.. no mess and tubes everywhere due to using ice to condense. This product is all stainless, very well made and adaptable to various heights depending on your heat source or the collection glass you use. Makes the best distilled product!
It reminds me of the M*A*S*H 4077 tv show... make a glass at a time.
If you utilize essentials (ummm.. or ummmm spirits) this will pay for itself in no time... just pennies to make your own stuff.. good tasting stuff..... GET IT!!! I LOVE MINE!!! GOOD JOB TABLETOP!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Free Liquor! (Or nearly so.) March 12, 2009
I feel I've been let in on a secret: With TableTop Still, it literally costs me pennies to make hard alcohol.

In these difficult economic times, I'm surprised more people are not using stills to make liquor. But then I look at other stills on the market and I understand why: they are very complicated and unwieldy to use.

But not TableTop. It couldn't be easier. Easy to set up, easy to use, easy to clean. I like the stainless steel design. And I love that you cool using ice cubes instead of running water. (All the other stills I looked at seem to require running water--and I never could figure out how I'm supposed to hook up those cooling lines to my kitchen faucet.)

As my Italian friends would say: "Bravo!" Or more to the point, "Salute!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Why does everyone NOT have one of these? December 19, 2010
Verified Purchase
I received the still, detailed instructions on how to set it up and use it, a free packet of Turbo Yeast (a great little bonus), and a hand written "thank you" letter from the TableTopStill men themselves.
This product was not made in China, and it shows. It's small, so don't plan on going into business, but the still works perfect. Make sure you load up the ice when using it ( i added some extra material on top of the cooling container to jam more ice in), and that's all there is to it.
It's still a surprise to me that college kids don't have these in every dorm room, no joke, because this is a great way to pass the time, at a cheap price, and end up with your own glass of spirits.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tabletop Still - Recommend April 9, 2014
Verified Purchase
In commercial wine making, Stainless is used for fermentation and storage. Copper is never used.

With this still, typical yield from 1/2 gallon of 12.5% to 13% wine yields 14 to 15 ounces of 84 to 88 proof distillate - not a trivial amount for a hobbyist who wants to make brandy or Schnaps. This equates to about a gallon of distillate for every 5 gallons of wash. Of course, your experience will vary, depending on alcohol content of your wash. Measurements were made using an alcohol hydrometer with the distillate at 60 degrees F. The hydrometer was also checked against commercial vodka and brandy to ensure accuracy.

I do recommend collection in an Erlenmeyer flask as this may improve efficiency as it has an inverted funnel shape and may help to concentrate the distillate. Higher proof - up to about 112 proof can be obtained with smaller collections say 7 ounces.

If you are cramped for space under the condenser for your collector, I recommend you contact the manufacturer. They will send you some stainless piping and to route the distillate away from directly under the condenser. This will also be necessary if you use an Erlenmeyer flask as the flasks will not fit between the legs of the condenser directly underneath.

As a side note; you will never find a manufacturer with better customer support.

For those who worry about sulphur compounds in your wash, you did not ferment your wash properly. Perhaps some experience in basic wine making would help. I have made wine for about 44 years. I know a little bit about fermentation.
